The band recently returned from their Mixtape tour to promote their latest single Bring Back The Time which has their counterpart on stage stars.

‘Joe and I always have a bottle shot for the opening night,’ Donnie revealed to MailOnline when he talks about the group riders – their requests for locker room.

‘When we were kids, we had arcade games on the rider and pinpong tables – it was crazy, but now we just have no wishes on the rider, we just have needs’.

The new single co-written and co-produced by Donnie, the song aims to uplift and inspire listeners. Embodied in the good feeling of their upcoming tour, he said, ‘From the second I started working on this song, I knew it could be a perfect anthem for the entire Mixtape 2022 tour! Kind of like a ‘Mixtape inside a Mixtape’.

‘When the other tour line-up artists responded with such enthusiasm and were ready to put together this nostalgic musical journey, I knew it would be something special for all our fans.’

‘Hopefully’ ‘Bring Back The Time’ captures a love for music, for creating memories and for people celebrating the best times. We plan to bring that energy to the stage every night! ‘
